Title: Organizational Structure and Cross-cultural Management: The Case of Credit Suisses Project Copernicus in Sinagapore
Authors: Nina Jacob
Issue/Year: Oct-2007
Section: Interfaces
Abstract: This paper explores the linkage between organizational structure and cross-cultural management. It suggests that a fluid and continuously evolving structure enables effective cross-cultural management. In support of this, the paper reports on the experience of one of the world’s largest financial services corporations – a Swiss Bank. The bank adopted a different type of organizational structure for one of its units. This new structure was different from the traditional bureaucracy it had used throughout the 150 years of its existence. It was observed to be an emergent structure, evolving in response to the stimulants provided by its various cultural constituents. It was also flexible; allowing it to assimilate when necessary, inputs provided by its diverse cultural constituents, and discard when necessary, structural features which no longer served any useful purpose. This paper discusses and analyses the experience of Credit Suisse Private Bankings Project Copernicus in Singapore for the period October 2000-December 2001.
